Gary Lineker highlights major difference between Jurgen Klopp and Louis van Gaal

Liverpool beat Manchester United 2-0 on Thursday night.

Liverpool took control of their Europa League quarter final clash with Manchester United by securing a 2-0 win over the Red Devils on Thursday night.

A first half penalty from Daniel Sturridge was added to by Roberto Firmino, with the Brazilian converting from close range after good work from Adam Lallana.

The Reds will travel to Old Trafford next week to try and finish off the job, as Jurgen Klopp chases major silverware in his first season as Liverpool boss.

The German will have been delighted with his side's dominant display at Anfield, but questions will again be asked of United manager Louis van Gaal following another torrid display.

With just one shot on target in 90 minutes on Merseyside, United were turgid in one of the biggest games of the season, and the Dutchman will again come in for stern criticism from disillusioned United fans.

After the game, pundit and Match of the Day host Gary Lineker took to Twitter to give his views on the game, and compared the work of the two managers.

Lineker believes that Klopp is working wonders at Anfield, and building an 'energetic, coherent unit', whilst Van Gaal has completely failed to do just that, despite having more time and much more money to spend so far, given that Klopp only signed Steven Caulker on loan in January.

Do you think Klopp is building something special at Liverpool?
